Christopher Nolan has never used email and does not own a cell phone.
The filmmaker produced one of Hollywood’s most hi-tech sci-fi blockbusters, Interstellar, which cost a reported $165 million to shoot, but he has revealed he keeps his own life simple and gadget-free.
Nolan tells The Hollywood Reporter, “I’ve never used email because I don’t find it would help me with anything I’m doing. I just couldn’t be bothered about it. As far as the cellphone goes… I’m never two feet from a cellphone. It’s very easy to get in touch with me when people need to. I actually really like not having one because it gives me time to think. You know, when you have a smartphone and you have 10 minutes to spare, you go on it and you start looking at stuff… There’s always someone around me who can tap me on the shoulder and hand me a phone if they need to.”
